5 Million Hits!

In August 2009, I started this blog.  Eight years later, I have over 5 million hits.  I want to thank all the readers of this blog for taking an interest in what I have had to say over the years.

I have a question for you.

Do you prefer written reviews or video?

There are many paths in life.

I value your input!

Best,



Jason

P.S.  My gut feeling is you prefer written reviews on this blog, and save the video reviews for YouTube.  You are more literary and intellectual than the average bear.  Lemme know.

  5. I'm also a fan of the written ones, I can sneak a read while at work. Plus some of them are really, really funny - you do have a way with words.

    1. Appreciate the kind words. Sometimes I fear my eccentric sense of humor doesn't come across to well in a whisky review.

      Have a great weekend!

  6. Jason, congrats on all the hits! I hope it's made your efforts worth while. I do enjoy your video reviews because they provide concise, focused evaluations of the spirits that you sample, but I also look forword to your written reviews for the stories and reminiscences that you share - it's that extra value the Cajuns call "lagniappe" that keeps customers (at least this one, anyway) coming back for more. Here's to the next 5 million!

  7. Jason, in a world with the attention span of a flea, there are still some of us who like to read good writing like your reviews. Keep the vid reviews for youtube and the written work here.

    I always enjoy your insightful and entertaining whisky reviews. No one weaves a good story and a whisky together like you.

  9. Written reviews are better for someone trying to find information - we can read them quickly.

    Videos give a better sense of who the reviewer - I find them more entertaining.

    I think there's a place for both and you do both very well.

  13. I absolutely love reading the reviews. Your humorous back stories always add a special touch. review notes have always been spot on, whether I have tried the particular whisky already or about to.

    Well done on being a honest and genuine reviewer!

    Cheers
    Nick

  14. Written for me. I enjoy your writing style and usually don't watch the videos.

  15. I don't really watch YouTube video reviews. I always go to the written word. Too much news etc in general is being put in video. People are getting lazy maybe and can't be bothered to read. But I for one prefer to read. So my vote is don't put video here. Link to YouTube if you feel that a video will really add an element unattainable with a picture(s) and words.
    My 2 cents, cheers

    1. Thanks! I will continue blogging then based on the positive feedback.

      Too bad Wiser's Legacy has been discontinued.

      Glad you are enjoying the Green Label!

  17. I log in at work, print out the review, read it at locations with no PC Access. Written is the better format.
